    [How To] Recover from a soft brick

    A soft brick, in this case, is when you make a bad edit to your framework files and the phone won't fully boot and starts flashing a red LED at you.

    There is one catch, you only get about 1-2min to do all of this before the phone reboots on its own. If that happens, do SuperOneClick steps again and continue where you left off. Better yet, build a script to do it all for you

    Power off your device

    Enter Fastboot:
    Hold Volume down + power until you see Fastboot at the top left

    Use volume down to scroll down to "Early USB Enumeration" (only shows one item at a time, if you pass it, keep going down, up selects)
    Press Volume up to select

    Wait for ADB to enable, run "Shell Root" from SuperOneClick, wait until it says you have root.

    Enter adb shell from command line, You should have root(#) access:
    adb shell

    Mount the system directory as read/write:
    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /system

    Make a new directory on /data for your recovery files: (sdcard wont be mounted yet)
    mkdir /data/recover

    Exit adb shell:
    exit

    Push your known working files to the new directory:
    adb push /path/to/local/file.ext /data/recovery

    Enter adb shell from command line:
    adb shell

    Copy your newly pushed recovery files to their proper location:
    cp /data/recover/services.jar /system/framework
    cp /data/recover/framework.jar /system/framework
    cp /data/recover/famework-res.apk /system/framework


    Reboot:
    reboot now
